Enterprise to Host Collision Repair Career Fair

Recruiters, executives, and students from the collision repair and automotive industries will gather at Enterprise Rent-A-Car’s headquarters for the Collision Repair Education Foundation and St. Louis I-CAR Committee’s Greater St. Louis Area Career Fair on Apr. 28.

Students will have the opportunity to network with industry employers, distribute resumes and, in some cases, land jobs on the spot, according to Enterprise.

“This event is a collaborative effort among our collision and automotive repair partners to connect well-trained students to challenging and rewarding careers,” said Dan Shymanski, St. Louis I-CAR Committee Chairman. “With a shortage of qualified candidates and employees in the collision repair industry, this career fair will help address a critical need for local employers.”

Founded by I-Car in 1991, the Collision Repair Education Foundation has been supporting the pre-employment segment of the collision industry for more than two decades. Together, the two organizations continue their partnership in supporting education for the entire industry.

“The St. Louis I-CAR Committee has really taken the lead in organizing this event for the community,” said Brandon Eckenrode, director of development for the Collision Repair Education Foundation. “I would like to thank this group of volunteers for their commitment to making a positive impact on students’ future careers in the collision repair industry. I encourage any business seeking young and enthusiastic technicians to get involved in this event.”

The scholarships and grants distributed through the Collision Repair Education Foundation enhance the education experience for students by increasing their exposure to and understanding of new automotive technology and equipping them with modern skills.

Enterprise Rent-A-Car has supported the work of I-CAR and the Collision Repair Education Foundation for years, according to the company. One example is Enterprise’s Automated Rental Management System (ARMS), which tracks the length of time a replacement vehicle is rented to a collision center customer.
